President Obama condemned a deadly blast in Bulgaria that killed several Israeli tourists in a Wednesday statement.

“I strongly condemn today’s barbaric terrorist attack on Israelis in Bulgaria,” Obama said.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured, and with the people of Israel, Bulgaria, and any other nation whose citizens were harmed in this awful event,” Obama said,

“These attacks against innocent civilians, including children, are completely outrageous. The United States will stand with our allies, and provide whatever assistance is necessary to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack. As Israel has tragically once more been a target of terrorism, the United States reaffirms our unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security, and our deep friendship and solidarity with the Israeli people,” Obama said.

The Israeli government has pointed Iran in what they say is “clearly” a terrorist attack on their citizens traveling abroad.
